Why Chaaya Baradhwaaj chose North Goa
It's a lovely home away from home... a minute from the beach.. unique in its offering in every which way. Always found Calangute-Baga the most easy to leisure around, shop, eat, drink, catch live shows. Never thought we would actually find a property that we could own! I can walk down to shop, i can walk down to the beach till Baga - the stretch takes just 15 minutes, and Calangute centre - just 5 minutes.. and the stretch that's a minute away from this bungalow is the least crowded and most clean stretch across the Calangute Baga beach strip. Had to buy it!

Guestbook comments from the manager
We loved the stay at Joshua's beach house. It was so comfortable and cosy. And in the rainy afternoons our family really got together with our long chat sessions in the balcony.
